Welcome to Central Florida's Coordinated Entry System (CES) Site  

Serving FL CoC 507 - Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties

A Coordinated Entry System is a community-wide effort to unify the homeless response system so that all homeless service programs work together to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring. 

Our CES aims to:
  • Ensure current homeless individuals and families are known by name
  • Increase seamless connections between agencies and those experiencing homelessness
  • Help those who can self-resolve do so, while prioritizing those who can’t self-resolve into appropriate housing
  • Be person-centered and data driven
  • Ensure our system operates with a Housing First approach

      CES Community HUBS

      HUBs are locations throughout the community where people who don’t have a safe place to sleep can have a conversation with a worker about their housing situation. Workers are available to explore all safe housing options to help keep folks out of shelters or off the streets.

      HUBs operate on a walk-in, first come-first serve basis and often hit a capacity. Depending on their capacity, they may not be able to have a conversation with everyone who walks in. And there is no guarantee of any services as a result of talking to someone at a HUB.
